A Word from the Owners

Hi there and welcome to Remarkable Africa,

A little about us and our website – it is set out to give you a true and honest idea of what to expect from a safari. Booking a safari can be daunting when you consider how foreign it can be and the amount of money you can end up spending. There are a large number of options for you and no doubt all offer a great service.

Why do we believe we can be different to everyone else?

Our vision is to inspire you to experience the remarkable wonders of Africa. With a genuine care for your needs and through a personalised, passionate and honest approach we aim to build your trust in us. This trust is made possible through our extensive African knowledge and hands-on experience of working and living in Africa for over 15  years, along with our close relationships with premier suppliers.

A relationship forged over 38 combined years which we endeavour to keep strengthening the bonds we have created which means we know exactly who to go to for more insight. With our close contacts within the industry we are always up to date with the very latest developments and the ability to arrange something extra special for you. These experiences and relationships allow us to build an itinerary to meet your needs and interests of where and when to travel that is best for you.

We aim to exceed your expectations in every aspect of your African vacation, from the smallest detail upwards. We cannot succeed until we understand your needs, and to understand we need to carefully listen to and interpret your desires to shape our recommendations for you. Hence our website is set out to give you an idea of what to expect however we would prefer to make contact to learn more about your expectations in the environment or manner that suits you.

Africa is our passion, and has played a huge part in the story of our lives. Like all stories, it is best shared, and we want to impart our passion for Africa to you.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you.

Alex and Tammy Chaplin

Africa Safari Specialists

You both have managed camps, guided groups of clients . You have helped train camp managers, camp staff, guides, chefs and maintenance personnel at many of the camps you send people to.You have personally helped
organise every single detail that goes towards giving visitors from all over the world the best possible experience in Africa. Over the years we have been on many trips in Botswana and Namibia where your expertise on the ground has been in evidence. You have organised all the transfers from camp to camp, always on time and always with complete safety. Not once have we asked if anything could have been done better, and we have the confidence in knowing that our next trip will be no different.

From BM & MR, South Australia

My son and I travelled to Botswana, going to Kingspool (Linyanti) and Gomoti camps via Maun. This was not my first trip to Africa but it was my sons and no stone was left unturned in ensuring we had the trip of a lifetime. The care and the focus by Remarkable Africa was to make sure your my son was safe and consistently enthralled with new experiences every day. He has now fallen in love with Africa and I am sure we will return and will only look at one company for our travel plans. Tammy and Alex are incredible to deal with and make your feel like your needs and desires are as important to them as their own.
